How to Guarantee Success in Worship

We all love a guarantee, don’t we? It helps us to minimize the risk of otherwise vulnerable transactions or relationships. When we approach God, wouldn’t it guaranteebe nice to have a guarantee? When finite, mortal man approaches the infinite, omnipotent God of the universe, it can often feel like a “risky” endeavor, and probably, to some level it should.

However, there IS a guarantee that we can count on when we approach God with our worship. Psalm 51:17 says “The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.” There is one way to guarantee that when we approach God, we will be heard and delighted in. He wants to be our everything–our all in all. God finds the most pleasure in us when we find the most pleasure in Him.

So, no matter where we find ourselves, let’s put pride away, remind ourselves of how needy we really are and come to our Father like a little child, crying “Abba, Father”. When we do that we are GUARANTEED of His delight in us! Stretch out your arms wide in worship today and let’s renew our total dependence on Him!
